    If I had a dollar for every person that's tried to race me I'd be a rich man. It actually happens more often in my Porsche when somebody in a tuned EVO or STI wants to show me how fast their Japanese car is versus the Porsche as if to say "Ha my $25k Japanese 4 door is as fast as your fancy Porsche." The problem is none of them are, nor can they dream of keeping up at 100+. It's really annoying!

    Are you sure he wasn't revving it to say "Nice rice rocket this is what a real fast car sounds like".....

    I know it seems like a waste of $$$, but way back in the day when I was driving a '79 Chevy Chevette (kids -you'll have to look that up) I had dreams of dropping a V8 in there and shocking other drivers. There is something about taking a POS and turning it into a sleeper that can be very satisfying.

    It is exciting to see hard work pay off.. N the look on an exotic car owners face when they are losing is priceless.. This vid is an example

    Tonight I was the DD. My buddies and I stopped at Mcd's and afterwards some moron in a soft top mustang just flipped me off for about a mile and a half. I think either he wanted to start **** or hes just jelly he can't has a real car.

    I wasn't blaming the car. Just poking fun. In fact I pulled up next to a nice wrx the other day and I gave the driver a wave. He just gave me a dirty look and took off. Sometimes I feel bad for nice cars

    I've only had a few people mess with me in the car and of course most of them are diesel trucks. I know a few people that own them and know they run well with a few mods but it's still a 7000lb truck.

    I didn't bother with anyone on the road when my car was stock because I thought it was pretty slow unless your in 1st or 2nd gear but once I got the Cobb AP, turbo back, and intake I have some fun every now and then if it's a safe area.
